    Reasons as to why i want to do this:
    1) Be able to buy smaller sized clothes

    2) Be able to feel more confident

    3) Decrease the size of my thighs

    4) Decrease my love handles but to have a smaller waist

    5) Keep my curves (keep me feelin womanly)

    6) Not have to constantly compare myself with my slimmer mates

    7) Be able to feel confident, sexy and girly around ma man

    8) Enjoy going shopping and be able to experiment with different types of clothes

    9) Be able to wear bright colours

    10) Be able to wear jeans again!! not that i don't like leggings they are really comfy i wear them most of the time with most tops but i still would love to b able to wear nycly fitted smaller sized jeans again!!!!!

    11) Also to prove to my family and friends that i can do this and i can look better then i do now!!

    I put cinamon in the vanilla and make it thick like a mousse. Even my son said it smelt like apple crumble!

    Hi Priya, at last you have joined the ranks of dieters. Good luck, look forward to your post when you are back at Uni to see how it is going but you sound seriously motivated so I am sure it will be an absolute walk in the park for you.

    tc n catch you probably tomorrow late afternoon...if any of you have any tips, advice, info as such in losing it quickly lol as quick as you all have done...then please feel free to tel me as i need all the help as i can get..even though i know every one's body types are different and will bear that in mind...i am those kind of people who need to see results or they endup eitha givn up or slowin down completely....:(....so would appreciate your support thank you.. :D

    Hey Priya, not much we can tell but to hang there. You sound serious about this so there is no problem with the motivation. You do not have much to lose so your weight loss might not be as much as some of us was the 1st week so DO NOT GET DESPONDENT. I personally do not know why you get even smaller but it is something you want to do and you you are motivated to do it, just please please do not let your intake be any less than what the diet suggests as this can be dangerous. Yesterday is seems you only ate half the bar, that would mean you are 100 calories less than what the diet says. I know LL is 500 calories a day so it may not be to bad but Exante suggests 600 a day if you doing the total plan, which you are. Why not eat the bar throughout the day if you cannot finish it in one go and have the other two drinks at the normal times, one in the morning and one in the evening.
    I am no expert yet but this sounds like a reasonable way of consuming your 600 cals a day.
    I think you will be happy with your 1st weeks loss. Good luck and we look forward to seeing you updates

    Priya you must east the full bar. 600 calories are needed to keep your body functioning. If you take in less you wont lose weight quicker as your body will go into starvation mode and then you will get some nasty side effects.
    Good luck with the week. You've seen us suffer on here in the first week so know what to expect lol. Just keep up the water glugging :)

    I think your waist would be smaller than 39 inches chick. Your waist is the indent below your lowest rib bone and above your hip bone. Seems high, but if you read online, that is where it is. I bet you have measured your hips or bum/hips x

    Instructions
    Things You'll Need:
    Body measurement tape
    Step 1
    Find your natural waist. An easy way to do this is to stand in front of the mirror and bend at your side. The crease that forms indicates your natural waistline, directly above the belly button and below the ribcage.

    Step 2
    Stand up straight and relax your abdominal muscles. Wrap the measuring tape completely around your waist starting at the belly button. Begin at the spot on the tape where the measure reads "0". Make sure the tape is level around your waistline; not too loose, not too tight.

    Step 3
    Do not place the measuring tape over clothes. You'll get the most accurate results on bare skin. However, make sure the tape is not squeezing into your skin. The number that meets the "0" after you have circled your entire waist is your waist measurement.

    Step 4
    Remove the tape and jot down your measurement for future reference. A healthy waistline for a woman is between 32 and 23 inches. For a man, it's between 45 and 32 inches.

    Sweet you tell us all whatever you want and as often as you like. Fitting into things you did not fit into before is a victory and damn girl, must be celebrated and spoken about. I drink about 4 litres a day and also drink from a bottle but then I enjoy water and have always drank a lot of water much like the booze in my mispent youth.
